CHOCOLATE (AGAR-AGAR) PUDDING

this chocolate pudding is deliciously gelatin free! i picked up some agar agar (or china grass) from the asian alimentacion and was keen to find a recipe to try it out. this was was a winner and super simple to make!

how?

2 cups of soy milk (or non-dairy milk of your choice)
2 tablespoons of agar-agar
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (unsweetened)

mix a little of the soy milk with the cocoa powder, then combine with the remaining soy milk to avoid any lumps. place the 'chocolate' soy milk and agar agar in a small saucepan and bring to the boil, then turn down the heat to a simmer and stir continuously until the agar agar has dissolved. add the sugar and cook until it has dissolved. check the sweetness and add extra sugar as desired. pour the mixture into a small square dish and place into the fridge to set. once set remove the pudding from the dish and slice into small squares. enjoy!

  1. This sounds so delicious! I've made pudding using agar, but never little squares that keep their shape like this - cannot wait to try!
